Question about 1985 Chevrolet Chevy

1 Answer

1992 Pace Arrow Motor Home 454 Chevy...not getting fuel to start

Replaced the power steering pump and now the fuel injected carb isn't getting gas to start the engine, if you put gas in the carb it will start and run forever. Fuel pump is working, fuel filter is new and there is pressure/gas getting to carb but won't start unless you put gas directly in the carb. Figuring the power steering replacement is unrelated but??? Did have to disconnect the oil sending unit to get to power steering pump, but is has been connected and seems to be working correctly. Checked all fuses also...Any ideas????

    It will continue to run on its own and you can see the fuel feeding into the throttle body. We will check the plugs to the distributor and I will mention the Noid lights to my brother who is working on it. Thank you

    Power steering problems were due to using automatic transmission fluid rather than power steering fluid.



    Starting problems were due to a blown fuse labeled for the electric window on the drivers door...no indication that it had anything to do with the throttle body or fuel injection but it did.

After you dump the fuel in the throttle body it will continue to run on its own or die as soon as it burns up all the fuel you dump in? Do you have access to (Noid lights)? Are both plugs attached to the distributor?

    Also check the fuel pressure. It might be low. Low pressure could make it not start but run O.K when the alternator raises the voltage to the fuel pump.

Its possible if you have a carb instead of fuel injection.
The engine would stall and have to sit for a while to cool off before restarting. The carb would in effect run out of gas.

1979 holiday rv chevy 454 no fuel to carb i replaced fuel pump filters fill carb with gas engin runs then no fuel to carb


if it has been sitting for a long time you may have to dis-connect the fuel lines at both the tank and the pump and blow air through to see if there is a blockage in the line. if that is clear then make sure all fuel hose's are in good condition and not collapsing from old age. if those are in good condition then there is a problem in the tank and it will have to be removed for inspection....

To bypass the other switches, run a wire from the battery to the starter bendix and if it cranks then the problem is in the wiring or the switches you mention.
